NATURE

Being in nature feels good. Now scientific studies show measurable health benefits from spending time in nature. When standing on grass or sand our feet receive negative ions from the earth which reduce inflammation, cortisol levels, pain and calm the sympathetic nervous system. Breathing in the forest air also has been shown to lower cortisol levels. But new studies show that you can also gain benefits from looking at nature. Just looking at the geometric patterns only found in nature, fractals, improves cognitive functioning.

So watching these videos can be good for you. But I also hope these park profiles inspire people to get out into their own local parks.
